MLB: Jackie Bradley son arrives in Toronto

MLB: Jackie Bradley Jr. lands in Toronto


The Major League Baseball trade deadline is behind us, but the Toronto Blue Jays still managed to add depth to their outfield squad by signing Jackie to a one-year deal Bradley Jr.

Released by the Boston Red Sox last week, Bradley is a World Series champion who has more than 1,000 professional games behind the tie. His best years, however, are probably behind him; he drove in just 29 runs and hit just three long drives in 92 games this season.

The 32-year-old Virginia native signed a two-year contract worth $24 million with the Milwaukee Brewers in March 2021, but only played one season in Wisconsin before being traded to the team that drafted him in 2011.

This signing forced the Blue Jays to demote Quebecer Otto Lopez to the AAA ranks and nominate pitcher Matt Peacock for assignment.
